ACOPOStrak, the intelligent factory motion control, will be displayed for the first time at trade shows in Brazil at the B&R stand at Intermach. The main advantages of this new feature include maximum equipment availability, high-speed transport and positioning, fast switching and high flaw tolerance. The equipment increases overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), multiplies return on investment (ROI) and speeds up your time to market (TTM). “ACOPOStrak has a 5g acceleration capability and reaches speeds of over 4m per second with a minimum product pitch of only 50mm”, explains Angelo Spiel, B&R sales engineer in Brazil. “The high-performance system enables you to increase productivity and maximize ROI,” he adds.
ACOPOStrak is considered a
revolution in adaptive manufacturing that increases the economy of mass
production to single batches. Parts and products are transported quickly and
flexibly from one workstation to another in independently controlled shuttles.
ACOPOStrak is a generational leap in intelligent and flexible transportation
systems. Its unique design offers decisive technological advantages for adapted
and connected manufacturing. You can efficiently produce small batches and
benefit from increased margins for custom products. It also extends the digital
transformation to include movement control and mechanical design, which, due to
the extremely low friction, has minimal wear and reduces maintenance of part
exchange and collaborates with the environment by avoiding disposal of materials.
B&R is an Austrian multinational
company, focused on solutions for industrial automation. Founded in 1979, it is
part of the ABB Group and has more than 185 offices worldwide. Present in
Brazil since 1996, with head office in Campinas (SP) and offices in Santo André
(SP) and Curitiba (PR), it offers infrastructure for technical support, sales,
local stock, services and training. The product lines cover a wide range of
industrial automation equipment (CLP, Industrial PC, Servomotors, Step Motors,
Frequency Inverters, Transport System) and the technical staff has know-how in
specific areas of automation of machines and processes. It counts with teams of
specialists in each industrial sector, always working with the most advanced
technologies to meet the most demanding markets in the global scenario, such as
packaging, metallurgical, printing, energy, oil and gas, food and beverages.
